‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Editors Reveal Which Scenes Were Part Of The Reshoots

Ben Mendelsohn in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

As many of you recall, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story went through a series of reshoots last summer. During the course of that time, many were concerned about the timing of these reshoots and script rewrites. Naturally, big budget blockbusters like Rogue One will go through reshoots just to work out any issues the film may have. In the long run, these reshoots helped the film, as it quickly became the third highest grossing film of 2016 in just a matter of a few short weeks.

Now the subject of these reshoots has popped up again, as many are wondering what scenes were reshot and what scenes were rewritten. Of course, now is the perfect time to ask about it considering that the film is practically behind us. Find out more about what Rogue One editors John Gilroy and Colin Goudie had to say about those scenes in the full story below.

‘Firefly’ Star Alan Tudyk Talks Playing K-2SO In ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

K-2SO In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The latest Star Wars movie, and the first spinoff from the numbered series, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may not have had the same kind of opening weekend The Force Awakens had. As Disney expected. But The Force Awakens had the best domestic opening of all time and went on to become the new all-time domestic box office king, so that’s no great shock to anyone at all. But that’s not to say the movie had a bad opening. Quite the contrary. It scored a $155 million domestic opening—the second best for a Star Wars movie and the 12th best all-time—and nearly $135 million foreign for a $290 million worldwide total. Now we can only wait to see how high it will rise in the all-time rankings.

While we wait for that, here’s a short video well worth giving a watch. In it, Firefly star Alan Tudyk talks about playing the droid K-2SO in Rogue One. This includes figuring out the right voice to use, walking around on stilts, and more. You can check it out below.

Star Wars Rogue One X-Wings

Apparently plenty of you rebelled over the weekend as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the number one film, grossing over $290 million worldwide. Many critics were overjoyed by Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars spinoff praising it for being new by mixing in the old — the new being focusing on the untold story of how the plans to the Death Star were stolen, the old being seeing digitized classic characters from the original trilogy. But the old also included some unused footage – that many of us didn’t even notice at the time – from the original 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope. Check out the full story below. Minor spoilers follow. There’s your only warning.

Star Wars Rogue One Creatures

Practical effects are coming back in a big way, and we have Star Wars to thank for that.

Now, Lucasfilm will continue that tradition in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

With the film just two weeks away from release, we are getting a new look at how they brought the creatures to life in a brand new behind-the-scenes featurette.

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Scribe Tony Gilroy To Make $5 Million Off Rewrites

Rogue One A Star Wars Story Empire header

Sometimes one man’s controversy is another man’s $5 million paycheck. At least for Tony Gilroy. As you may recall, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was embroiled in a lengthy controversy when the film entered a summer-long reshoot session that required the aid of Gilroy doing rewrites for the film. Normally, a reshoot for any film, especially one of this size, is not really a cause for concern, but because Disney and Lucasfilm were not pleased with the film’s tone, and that a rumored 40% of the film needed to be reshot in order to address some of its major issues, like tone.

Now that the reshoots are fully behind us and Rogue One is already having its press tour, we can look forward to seeing if these reshoots helped or hurt the first Star Wars spinoff. Regardless of what happens, though, Gilroy is getting a nice paycheck out of all of this. One that amounts to $5 million. More on the story below.
